Designed by Rich Guzman of R.G. Designs and built by McGarvey Custom Homes, the Domani villa model residence is ideally suited to the luxury lifestyle found at Quail West. This exquisitely appointed two-story residence includes 3,491 square feet under air and features three bedrooms, a study, three-and-a-half baths, a pool bath, a two-and-a-half car garage, verandas on both levels and a beautifully detailed outdoor living area. The Domani is situated in Quail West’s La Caille neighborhood, an enclave of single-family villa residences created by McGarvey Custom Homes. Six unique La Caille floor plans offer an array of layouts, including single-story residences, two-story homes with elegant balconies and terraces, and a courtyard design with an inviting outdoor living area and spacious cabana.
“La Caille offers home sites with breathtaking views and dimensions that allowed the creation of a truly unique villa product,” said Jim Hamilton of McGarvey Custom Homes. “There are beautiful side-load courtyard garage door entries. Because of the depth of the lots, there is more covered space for maintenance free outdoor living. When people walk into a La Caille villa, we want them to envision their lifestyle. We want them to feel at home. We’ve given great attention to the proportion of the rooms and placed great importance on the kitchen, main living space and master suite.”
“With the Domani, our intention was to create a villa residence with features typically found in a larger home”, said Guzman. “We used soft radius curves rather than sharp angles in this home. There are many circular elements. The exterior includes features found in larger Mediterranean homes. The focus was to give it a Mediterranean flavor with a tropical effect. We used pre-cast concrete and stucco as well as tropical elements, such as Bahamian style shutters.”
The Domani’s exquisite interior was designed by Kelli Sultan, ASID, NCIDQ of KVS Interior Design in Bonita Springs. Her eclectic, traditional theme caters to comfort and ease and works beautifully with Guzman’s design. The predominate color palette’s warm terracotta tones are mixed with honey cream and touches of green to keep the ambiance very light.
A double-door off the foyer opens to a study with chestnut color 5” plank hardwood flooring set off by a textured wool Tibetan area rug and draperies with a geometric pattern. Wood furnishings with red accents play against the honey-colored walls. Furnishings include a mission-style desk and a built-in finished in a warm chocolate color. The two-story gallery hallway from the foyer to the main living area provides a see-through view to the outside. A collection of paintings adds interest. A hand-crafted leather bound credenza with caning inserts continues the theme of mixed wood tones. Metal pulls pick-up the railing on a traditional style staircase that features wrought iron, a wood cap and wood treads.
“The gallery hallway provides separation between the foyer and the owner’s personal space in the grand room,” said Guzman. “We felt that separation was important and did not want to sacrifice size. It is not a typical hallway. It has more of a grandiose feeling. It’s an art gallery.” The dining room is off the entry gallery. The space features wainscoting and a chair rail detail with grass cloth below. Tangerine colored walls provide a background for interesting artwork. The drapes are a beautiful burgundy-red silk fabric. The glass dining table contributes to the spacious feeling of the room and is surrounded by patterned fabric side chairs and woven rattan arm chairs. An open kitchen brings a sense of inclusion to guests in an adjacent grand room that flows through pocketing sliders to the outdoor living area. The kitchen includes a mix of two-tone Santa Cecelia granite, an island with latte finished cabinetry, perimeter cabinets in a rich warm wood tone and upgraded stainless steel Viking appliances. A beamed ceiling ties the kitchen and grand room together and features the same stain color as the perimeter cabinets.
The grand room includes a wet bar with a wine cooler, sink, glass-front mahogany cabinetry and a Rain Forest green onyx marble countertop. This wonderful gathering space flows to a circular outdoor living area that features a fireplace and a beamed ceiling that continues the look established in the kitchen and grand room. Four lounge chairs create a comfortable sitting area. There is an outdoor kitchen and bar adjacent to a dining area furnished with aluminum framed outdoor furniture. A spa serves as the focal point of a uniquely shaped pool. The Domani’s master bedroom features a tan linen upholstered headboard and side-rail bed with nail head trim. The light bedding is accented by lime-green and wood-tone pillows that play against distressed latte nightstands. A chestnut colored wooden window offers a contrasting accent. Cream-colored upholstery fabrics and a medium wood-toned piece for a television complete the furnishings. French doors lead to the outdoor living area. Chocolate-toned cabinetry in the master bath offers an Asian twist reinforced by grass cloth wall covering. The cabinets are topped by Jerusalem marble that is mimicked by a faux finish on the shower and tub surround. Iridescent glass tile serves as an eye catching focal point in the shower and is surrounded by the same porcelain tile used on the floor.
A loft overlooking the gallery hallway provides a comfortable sitting area for guests using the two upstairs bedrooms. The bedrooms share a sun deck overlooking the pool that guests can use without interacting with the owner.
The first of the Domani’s two guest bedrooms features fabrics that provide texture. A queen-size bed with a walnut finished headboard that has three shield arches offers an inviting neutral bedding ensemble that includes a textured coverlet and different threads and trims on the toss pillows. The bed’s footboard features low posts. A small desk and chair provides a work space and a three-drawer bachelor chest offers a mix of wrought iron and a beautiful wood tone. A unique bench with an animal print is incorporated at the end of the bed. The draperies are a neutral texture that complements the vanilla wall color.
The king-size bed in the second guest bedroom has a walnut finish mixed with brushed nickel-toned wrought iron and is topped by a matlesse style coverlet. Grass cloth, terracotta, chocolate and pumpkin colored pillows with gold and animal print textures serve as accents. A geometric pattern is incorporated in a bench at the foot of the bed. The creamy-pumpkin colored carpet has a bamboo design that contrasts beautifully against wrought iron lamps with hand-painted shades set on matching rustic-finished nightstands and against the rich terracotta red-toned faux finish on the ceiling. The drapery treatments add texture without a lot of pattern.
“The La Caille villa residences are a perfect addition to the offerings at Quail West,” said Cheryl Deering, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Quail West Realty. “As evidenced by the Domani, the floor plans have a spacious feeling and suit the Quail West lifestyle beautifully. This is a unique, wonderfully finished villa product with outstanding features.”
